West Ham – Liverpool, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR WEST HAM - LIVERPOOL
West Ham has once again got into bad shape and has had 3 losses and 1 draw in the last 5 games, with the only victory over Arsenal, but the hammers have a lot of defensive problems. Their form throughout the season is completely mid-level and they are logically below 10th overall and for their 24 matches they only have 4 clean sheets, which can not help them against Liverpool’s attack.
The Reds failed to do what the world was expecting, namely to regain the 7-point lead in front of City, but it rose to, 5 because Leicester made a draw with Liverpool. The team from Merseyside will not be entitled to many mistakes if they want to win the title. Let’s say that Leicester is really a heavy rival, the pitch was difficult to play, and the problems of the fullback position did not help.
Just because Liverpool failed to win a game does not mean that they will now be in crisis or give up to the pressure. There are just such matches. West Ham is a much easier rival from Leicester in view of the overall development of the season at the moment. In addition, the hammers are still missing important names, and Liverpool scored 4 goals in each of the last four matches against West Ham, total 16. We think the reds are much more classy and will not have a second straight failure, so prediction – Liverpool – Over 1.5 goals at 1.48. Alternative option – Over 2.5 goals at 1.60
